You want some of this? Keep reading 🙂

Here’s what you need

1 jar cherries, or fresh cherries, just have to get the stones out

210g old buns

300ml milk


2 eggs

50g butter, soft

60g sugar

vanilla extract or one pack of vanilla sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

almond extract, about 4 drops

some non stick cooking spray

Let the cherries drip of all the jar juices, if you used fresh ones, get the stones out.
 Crumble up the buns a little and pour the milk over them, let them absorb all the milk.
Spray a casserole dish. Seperate the eggs. Beat the egg whites until stiff, mix the soaked bread with the yolks, butter, sugar, vanilla, baking powder and almond extract. Then carefully fold the cherries and stiffended egg whites under the mixture.
(this is how you know your egg whites are stiff enough, they have to stick out and not move)
Bake at 200 Celsius or 392 Fahrenheit for about 30 min.

10min before it will be done, you can sprinkle sugar all over the top, that will give you a nice crust. Or you can serve it with powdered sugar and vanilla sauce.
Then, dig in 🙂

This is an older blog entry, but I decided to enter it since it’s a very traditional recipe from my home country, Germany. As soon as cherry season starts, I’m used to eating this at least once a week, even for dinner. In this recipe I told you to get the pits out of the cherries, but my mom reminded me after reading this, that when your kids are old enough (!) to leave them in, because you’re supposed to spit them out 🙂 This adds the extra fun during dinner, everybody is allowed to spit like crazy!

  1. >I haven't tried it with blueberries. If you do, leave the almond extract out, that doesn't work too well together. Or you try the blueberry snack cake I posted a while back 🙂
